Last real slate before the All-Star break

Detroit Pistons at Orlando Magic - 7:00 pm

DET

The Pistons are a team I am avoiding tonight. Not only is this a brutal matchup in Orlando with a slate low 205.5-point total, Derrick Rose is expected to play. This is going to take away usage from all the starters while Bruce Brown and Reggie Jackson play less minutes. This is the first time since the start of the season that we have seen Jackson and Rose healthy at the same time, so it’s hard to know what the dynamic will look like.

ORL

The pace of play issues obviously exist on this side of the game also. They aren’t quite as pronounced since the Magic are always in low scoring games, but it’s still enough for me to fade them. Vucevic has played well recently, which comes with an inflated price tag. There figure to be better value plays at center tonight. One other note, the ease ranking for centers against the Pistons is extremely positive and I am not sure that will be the case going forward. Drummond really struggled defensively this season and their interior defense could improve now that he’s gone.

Atlanta Hawks at Cleveland Cavaliers - 7:00 pm

ATL

This is a fine spot to pay up for Trae Young. He has one of the best ease rankings on the slate and the Cavs didn’t look so hot in Drummond’s first game. They lost by a franchise record 41 points at home and were already a team we liked to pick on. With Reddish, Hunter and potentially Bembry all back tonight, I am going to stay away from the Hawks’ role players. Minutes could be spread thin.

CLE

Despite a poor team performance from the Cavs in Drummond’s debut, the former All-Star still had a fine fantasy game. We have seen Drummond put up good stats on a crappy Pistons’ team all season and that probably won’t stop just because he’s on a different shitty squad. He’s a good center option against the Hawks. On the high end I prefer KAT to Drummond on Fanduel, but Drummond is preferable on Draftkings since his price is considerably lower than Towns’. We are also going to need an update here since Kevin Love is questionable. Nance figures to start if he’s out.

Toronto Raptors at Brooklyn Nets - 7:30 pm

TOR

Serge Ibaka is questionable after missing the Raptors’ last game with an illness. In his place, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson started on Monday and had a big fantasy game. He started at center, faced off against Karl-Anthony Towns and nearly scored more fantasy points. RHJ is a great play if starting again. O.G. Anunoby and Pascal Siakam also saw extra minutes with Ibaka out. If Ibaka plays, we can consider him an option due to the Nets’ issues with defending centers.

BKN

Kyrie is still out, meaning that Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert will continue to play larger roles. Due to the size of the slate and the number of options we figure to have available, I don’t think either of them are especially strong plays although they are viable. At a cheap price, Joe Harris is also a fringe play with some upside since he’s flashed some upside in recent games.

Milwaukee Bucks at Indiana Pacers - 7:30 pm

MIL

Once again, Giannis is out due to the birth of his son. Draftkings has gotten ahead of this and price both Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton way up, while Fanduel hasn’t. On DK, I am not going to be rostering these guys, but they are core plays on Fanduel. In FD cash games, playing Bledsoe and Middleton is a must. Brook Lopez is a decent GPP target on both sites although he doesn’t get the same bump without Giannis as some of the other players on this roster.

IND

We are yet to see a big breakout game from Victor Oladipo. Understandably, there is some rust after he missed over a year because of a serious knee injury. With that said, he has still been able to provide some value on Draftkings and is a decent play tonight because of how cheap his price tag is. Dipo has been able to hit 5x value in the last couple of games and I expect him to get close to his old form in the near future. I am going to keep buying on him until his price tag goes up.

Washington Wizards at New York Knicks - 7:30 pm

WAS

Last night, it was reported that Hachimura would be playing limited minutes so that he could play on both ends of the back-to-back. This didn’t end up being the case, which was extremely frustrating since he played well and I had liked him prior to that report. He’s expected to play limited minutes again, and even though this might not be the case, it’s enough to scare me off of him again. The frontcourt minutes are a bit uncertain for everybody on the Wizards, so I’ll fade the situation. Beal is okay although there are other players I prefer spending up for.

NYK

Just about every slate the Wizards play on, stacking the game and targeting against Washington is a typical build for me. Not today. Not only is there uncertainty with the Wizards’ minutes, playing time is almost always hard to predict for the Knicks. Somehow, this has become even more difficult for New York after the Trade Deadline. New York is running a really deep rotation and the minutes have been more spread out than normal. The only player I think worthy of consideration here is Julius Randle since he’s the one player I think we can count on playing decent minutes.

Charlotte Hornets at Minnesota Timberwolves - 8:00 pm

CHA

Now back in the starting lineup and playing full minutes, the price seems a bit too cheap for P.J. Washington. He makes sense as a contrarian GPP play. I also think there is some upside in rostering Terry Rozier at his current salary. Despite a negative ease ranking, the Wolves’ first game in the DLO era seemed to imply that this team is going to have a poor defense and play at a very fast pace.

MIN

We are only one game into the KAT/Russell era. From what we saw, it looks like this team is going to be a goldmine for fantasy production. I am thinking of the Wolves as the west coast version of the Wizards. Their first game with the new squad had a total of 263 points scored in a loss the Raptors. KAT is my favorite option on the high end of the pricing and DLO is also an upside play. For value, it looks like James Johnson is going to be playing a key role for this team off the bench.

Portland Trail Blazers at Memphis Grizzlies - 8:00 pm

POR

For both of these teams, this is a really important game with playoff implications. Portland trails the Grizzlies by three games for the final playoff spot in the West and can’t afford to fall too far behind. For this reason, I expect a really heavy workload from Lillard tonight. He should push for close to 40 minutes as long as this game is competitive. He’s my favorite expensive option at point guard.

MEM

Ja Morant makes for a pretty good target here. He’s coming off of his first career triple-double and I expect the Grizzlies will be willing to play him more than his normal minutes in this key game. His playing time may have been down in some recent games, but it was due to blowouts. Prior to the Grizzlies’ last game, they played in five consecutive games decided by 12 or more points. This is also a good upside spot for Jaren Jackson since the Blazers struggle to defend big men. He has a positive ease ranking and his upside is substantial if he can avoid fouling.

Sacramento Kings at Dallas Mavericks - 8:30 pm

SAC

I don’t think there is too much to see here. Fox is playing well and would be a viable GPP play in a vacuum. The issue is that there are a handful of other point guards I prefer in his price range. I have similar thoughts about Bjelica. He is still a bit too cheap on Fanduel although it looks like power forward is a spot where we will end up with a decent amount of better value plays. If I want a mid tier power forward with upside, I am going to JJJ before Bjelica.

Bogdanovic (Fanduel)

DAL

How many minutes is Doncic going to play in his first game back? It seems like a light minutes restriction is warranted since he missed seven games although he played 33 minutes the last game he returned from an ankle injury. It is worth noting that was only a four-game absence. On Fanduel, he’s priced way down and is a bargain if playing normal minutes. Luka’s return takes the rest of the guys on Dallas out of consideration.

Miami Heat at Utah Jazz - 9:00 pm

MIA

The Heat are a fade spot for me. Even though the Jazz haven’t been as stellar as we typically expect as of late, this is still not a great spot and there are plenty of better matchups to target. The rotation is a bit more spread out now that Jae Crowder and Andre Iguodala are both playing.

UTA

We are going to need an update on Mike Conley’s status. After resting on Monday, he’s questionable to play tonight because of an illness. If he’s out, both Donovan Mitchell and Joe Ingles are players worth rostering. Both of them see an uptick in ball handling duties with Conley off the court. If Conley plays, the Jazz are a team I’ll be fading.

Golden State Warriors at Phoenix Suns - 9:00 pm

GSW

Andrew Wiggins, sometimes maybe good, sometimes maybe shit. He’s been a high variance fantasy player over the last couple of months and I think it stands to reason we could see more usage from him on the Warriors. This roster is filled with players who can’t create their offense, leading me to think we should see Wiggins take a lot of shots. The problem is that this hasn’t come to fruition in his first couple games with Golden State. I’ll have some shares of him in GPP, but can’t trust him in cash games at the moment.

Cash Plays

Wiggins

PHO

It looks like Deandre Ayton is going to sit out another game. This leaves the Suns incredibly thin in the frontcourt since they also don’t have Aron Baynes, Dario Saric or Frank Kaminsky to turn to. Cheick Diallo figures to get all the minutes he can handle. In this situation on Monday, he played 39 minutes and likely would have played more if not for a 25-point blowout. Diallo is a core play for me tonight. We should also see Kelly Oubre back in the starting lineup. He came off the bench last game for discipline reasons after missing the team bus.

Los Angeles Lakers at Denver Nuggets - 10:00 pm

LAL

There aren’t many players to pay up for today, so both Anthony Davis and LeBron James figure to be players I have a light amount of exposure to in GPP. I don’t love either of them as plays, but if a lot of value opens up, there isn’t really anywhere else to turn to. It looks like LeBron is going to be a slightly higher priority play since small forward is a tougher position to fill tonight than power forward. There is a chance the Lakers’ stars play a bit more than normal since this is a key game for the top seed in the Western Conference. The Nuggets would only be two games back with a win.

DEN

Denver is another fade team for me. Jokic is playing pretty well over the last couple week, but I prefer both Drummond and especially KAT in the same price tier. As for the role players on Denver, the minutes are more splintered now that Paul Millsap is healthy and Jordan McRae has been added to the mix.

Fanduel is going to be chalk central tonight. Between the Bucks' players not being priced up and Cheick Diallo being nearly min price, lot of the plays are pretty obvious. On Draftkings, it looks like I am going to be building around a lot of Wolves' players.

182.7d ago

182.7d ago
although if Ingram scratches I'll have little Kawhi
182.7d ago
I'll have alot of Kawhi
182.7d ago
Where I'm going with this is as of now, I'm assuming George would be the better play based on what the two got last time out against BOS. BUUUUUUUUT...maybe Leonard is worth a harder look, if that poor shooting % was just a fluke.
182.7d ago
@sboy Your question got me to wondering, so I dug into the game log a bit. Last game out in LA, Leonard had a 38+ (I'm on Yahoo, so it might be a bit more for FD or DK). He shot the ball poorly (35%), but had 3 STLs and 2 BLKs. George pulled down 41, with no STLs and 1 BLK. Now I want to know did Leonard get shut down by Celtic defenders, OR did he just have an off night shooting. That game, he had just come back from 3 games off (I don't remember why), and over the next six or seven, he roller coastered with his shooting %, not counting another game off in the middle of that bunch. The projections don't show Leonard to have a particularly difficult matchup (Ease is -0.04), so I wonder if he has the potential to have a really good night tonight, even if they ARE in Boston.

Thanks! I play a lot of late slates which are mostly 2 or 3 games, and I’ve done pretty good with them, maybe even better than the larger slates. I don’t really know why, other than I just have a knack for finding the right combo of plays which isn’t owned by other managers AND can cash. It’s gonna be interesting tonight, since both games so far look pretty balanced, no clear cut strategy to play.

@sboy he's less likely to have a big game for sure if he has a minutes restriction. The issue, as of now, is that we don't really know how much he's playing. I have some exposure to him in GPP.

Greg, you know very well we want and expect 60 pts from Luka at that price. He will not be in the winning lineup if he only scores 50 pts. Not sure what to make of your answer.
183.7d ago
No clue at the moment. I have to rework everything for the wolves news.
183.7d ago
What is your core looking like tonight?

He played a ton last game, but it was a double ot game. I have very little feel for what the Knicks rotation will be going forward.

183.8d ago
@whiteshadow I prefer Bridges to Juancho for cash. His shooting is going to regress, but it looks like he could play extra minutes with Ayton out.
  100% (1) UP
183.8d ago
@gros I like Rubio as a GPP play. He’s had a terrible run of bad luck. He’s been playing really well in limited minutes and the Suns games have consistently been blowouts lately.
183.8d ago
Mikel Bridges popping in some of my builds. Thoughts on him for cash? And would you prefer him or Juancho
183.8d ago
What are your thoughts on Rubio's recent play? He hasn't reached 29 FD pts in any of his last 10 games, yet has been consistently projected in the low to mid 30s (just over 35 tonight). Avoid in cash?
183.8d ago
@jack KAT
183.8d ago
@bm he was for me until the Suns announced that Bolden would play tonight. Diallo has always been a guy who scores more than a fantasy point per minute, so the $5,000 is still cheap if he plays 40 minutes again. It doesn't seem like he's going to get that much playing time with Bolden in the mix.
183.8d ago
@shotgun probably not, he's been shooting over 60% from the field and this is a much tougher matchup
183.8d ago
@monstee Chriss is fine on Yahoo
183.8d ago
Suppose Love sits tonight. KAT or Drummond?
183.8d ago
Diallo at 5K is a core play? Seems a tad expensive. I get the minutes, but unsure about his usage.
183.8d ago
Clarkson's been on 2 game tear do you expect him to continue tonight if Conley's out?
183.8d ago
Chriss with Looney out? $1 cheaper compared to Demon. U like or someone else?
183.8d ago
RJ Barret is cutting into his ball handling duties.
183.8d ago
Bledsoe I understand but Morant hasn’t been a picture of consistency himself. 50 pt ceiling doesn’t seem out of reach for Elf especially if Wizards are sloppy on the B2B and Elf can capitalize on some steals. He can also rack up peripherals with the pace up
183.9d ago
@bm Dedmon seems viable. I guess his minutes are more secure now that he’s back in Atlanta
183.9d ago
@jack it’s hard for me to reason rostering Payton when he’s more expensive than Morant and Bledsoe and played under 30 minutes two games ago
183.9d ago
dedmon? Clearly Jones is on the outs.
183.9d ago
You have no interest in Elf? Minutes have been pretty consistent and Washington just gave up a trip dub to Ja Morant and a good game to Sato/Coby White
183.9d ago
Yea that’s fine
183.9d ago
Hernangomez an ok punt at SF for fd cash? I ask because I have exactly 3900 left to spend haha
